Musicians of Malaysia are often receive little to no attention from people, but this video will perhaps prove they are simply targeting the wrong species.
A quartet of fascinated kittens have been filmed watching a musician as he plays the guitar on the streets of Pangkor, Malaysia.
The four fans are there to stay as the long haired man sings, sitting right in front of him, their heads tilted up as they listen.
The man smiles as he looks down at his enchanted feline audience, even laughing mid-song at the cuteness.
While the cats look around slightly during the performance they don’t once move or even stretch, proving they certainly have more patience than most human youngsters today!
The person who captured this adorable video later wrote online: ‘My friend just finished his busking on that night but not many people heard him sing.
‘He was feeling upset, then he sits and relaxes and sings the song just for fun.
‘Suddenly, the kittens (3 months old) come and sit in front of him,’ he continued, ‘it’s like [they] know his feeling and give him support.
‘The kittens be his audience till the end and he thanked the kittens for watching his performance’.
In general, cats have superior hearing and do seem to enjoy music and many animal shelters play classical music due to the calming effect it has.
One composer, David Teie, has dedicated his entire career to creating music specially for kitties with a project called – imaginatively – Music for Cats.
According to his website, ‘Felines establish their sense of music through the sounds heard after they’re born: bird’s chirping, or their mother’s purr.’
An independent study conducted by researchers at the University of Wisconsin verified that Music for Cats resonates conclusively with its audience, going on to say that ‘cats showed a significant preference for and interest in species-appropriate music.’
